7 Quick Takes Friday

One.
I've laughted myself silly at the
mondegreens over at Fellowship of the Traveling Smarty Pants this week. Ever since I figured out that Celine Dion really sings about hot dogs and not about "hearts going on," I can't remember the words to any of the songs I used to think I knew. Thanks to Nick the Geek for teaching me a new word. I will find some way to work that in a conversation this weekend.

And a two.

I won a contest from Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer and yesterday my "Courage" necklace arrived in the mail. It was just a few days late from when I needed the actual courage, but it was worth the wait, which means a wing and a prayer got me through the week. Thanks to lisa leonard designs! Forget Valentine's Day guys? Something hand-made from Lisa would get you out of the dog house!

And a three.
At our Beth Moore "Stepping Up" Bible study last night, this line hit me in the gut. "The things I hate the most about my past are the things God is using in me to minister." Isn't it great how He brought us to our respective places? If you don't think so now, trust Him. You will see He knows what He's doing.

And a four.
Ron Burgundy turns 59 today. He is absolutely the youngest (not to mention sweetest, most humble, most giving) 59 year-old I know. I love this guy. And our kids. And our dog and cat. My heart could go on and on....but Celine ruined it for me.

And a five.
Thoroughly convicted, yet at peace with Pete Wilson's "Paralyzed" podcasts this week. During some random reading this week, this jumped out at me:

"I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety or fear try to call me, they keep getting a busy signal - and soon they'll forget my number." ~Edith Armstrong

His Word will keep my telephone ringing this week. that, and incessant prayer. Pete rocks.

And a six.
I think the best birthday dinner to feed the one you love is leftover black bean soup. Don't you?

And a seven.
TGIF

Tea tonight: Green with lemongrass

Candy...I am loving the music on here! How do you do that? I'm am so blog-techie ignorant. Anyway, we sang Mighty to Save for the first time last week and I love that song right now.

And I love that you call your husband Ron Burgandy. We have an anchor at our local station that we've nicknamed that, too.

I saw them embarrassing Ron on the news tonight by mentioning his birthday repeatedly. :) Hope you guys have a great weekend!
